Super Netball Finals 2022: Three games that will make or break your team’s season
A wild-week long sprint will decide this year’s Super Netball finalists, with a host of teams still in contention. We assess every team’s remaining matches and the likely title threats.
If the Super Netball season is a marathon, the eight teams are about to head into a week-long sprint that will make or break their finals dreams.
Clubs will play three games in a week in the second condensed section of the season, with the midweek round injected to ensure the season is over ahead of the Commonwealth Games.
Ladder leaders West Coast Fever and Melbourne Vixens can seal their place in the finals with a successful week, while the Queensland Firebirds and Giants can also put themselves in the box seat for a top four place.
In all but one season since the inception of the Super Netball competition, eight wins has been enough to send a team to the final and with the Fever and Vixens having both notched six already, the next week could push them across the line.
How teams cope with travel, fatigue and recovery over the next week is likely to determine their fate in arguably the most even Super Netball season yet.
With every club still in the finals equation after eight rounds, here’s how the next week could determine their fate.
